E3 2011 Hands On Preview Prime World

Free to play co-op? Yes, please. In the early quarter of 2012 it looks like we’ll be seeing a very slick fantasy co-op game called Prime World from developer Nival. I sat down for some quality PC time and walked away convinced I could play this game. Not only for its content, but the style and diversity in the gameplay. Here’s what I saw.

New F.E.A.R. 3 Trailer Reminds Us To Bring a Friend

Fear 3's release date is almost upon us.  The latest trailer for the FPS action/horror game kindly suggests that we don't play alone.  I keep on forgetting about this title, and then it comes roaring back with bigger and badder trailers.  This one is bloody as a two-minute steak.  Sounds like Marilyn Manson is adding to the atmosphere, which works for this video (if you're into that sort of thing).  I hope the gameplay is solid because Fear 3 looks like it will be a blast for co-op, whether you're couching it or online.

Gears of War 3 Xbox 360 with 320GB HD Coming Soon

One announcement we missed during E3 was for a Gears of War 3 Special Edition Xbox 360.  This custom painted Xbox 360 Slim comes with two custom painted controllers (perfect for co-op), a copy of Gears of War 3, and some limited downloadable content for the game.  The console itself will play Gears of War related sounds while powering on and opening the tray.  The console is also touting the biggest hard drive available for the Xbox 360 at 320GB.

E3 2011 - Dark Souls Hands-On Preview

Sometimes you don't realize how devastatingly poignant something is until a day later.  I snapped this photo of the Dark Souls booth, happy that there was no line covering the display . Sure, it looks cool, but what's more intriguing is that there's no line at all.  Those ropes mark the entrance to Dark Souls, and they could hold no more than a dozen people.  This picture was not taken at E3 after hours or before the doors opened.  In fact, there were hundreds of people in line for some of the bigger games when I took it.

Check Out the Hardcore NPCs of War in the North

We've gone hands-on a couple different times with Snowblind's upcoming War in the North. Opinions are mixed and excitement levels are varied amongst the Co-optimus staff and community, but one thing's quite clear: this is a game that a huge amount of people have their eyes on. We showed you guys a trailer at the beginning of the month devoted to Beleram, a recently announced NPC (non-player character) who will be eating some orc faces by your side in the game. Today, a new trailer was released that revealed more NPCs who you'll meet and fight along side of in the game. The wizard Radagast the Brown and Elrond's sons Elladan and Elrohir will be joining the fight in the north as well as Elrond and Gandalf, of course.

E3 2011 - Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest Hands-On

During Sony's E3 2011 press conference they unveiled a new family friendly PS Move title called Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest.  Kat immediately turned to me and said how much fun it looked like.  Being developed by the same team that created Sports Champions and utilizing many of the same mechanics, that should come as no surprise.  The gladiator and archery games in Sports Champions were some of our favorite and Deadmund's Quest combines those mechanics with disc golf, or in the game's case, throwing stars.
